These scenic photos are from the Travel Photographer of the Year International Photography Competition. They recently posted all the winners, runners-up, and special mentions on their site, and I have been spending way too much time perusing them! If you are the sort who enjoys just savoring photographs, especially really interesting and scenic ones, I totally recommend checking it out!
These stunning pieces are from a recent book illustrated by Kat MacLeod, called Bird. It apparently runs for $400, so I doubt I’ll ever get my hands on it, but hopefully more of the images from it will appear on the net over time so I will at least get to see a few of them! If they are anything like these, I know I will enjoy them!
Remember a little bit ago when I posted about the jewelry that our accessories designer, Sarah makes? Well, I am very excited to report that some of her pieces will be hitting our Paramus NJ, Short Hills NJ, and King of Prussia PA stores this week! Make sure to check them out if you plan on doing any after-Christmas shopping at Free People!
Word has it that this floating building is not photo-shopped, but is in fact real and exists in Ukraine! I’ll let you decide for yourself. Still, a very cool picture, right?
For the life of me I can’t remember where I originally saw these book pages, but they are so darn interesting! I think the second picture would be really cool as the graphic on a tee-shirt. Like maybe take all the “R” stuff and put it on a shirt. What do you think? See more pages from the book here – seriously go look, they’re really neat!
It took Eric Tabuchi four years to collect the right pictures to complete this truck alphabet. Totally worth it, but I’m wondering, how did he ever find the Q? And I love the lower-case F. He’s working on another truck alphabet currently, and you can see what he has gotten so far on his site.

Landscape architect and designer Gustafson Porter created this beautiful floating canopy with helium balloons and some shade cloths (and I imagine they’re tied to the ground somehow, otherwise your canopy would just fly away!). I love the idea of marking off a space in nature, and the fact that it’s floating makes it kind of magical and organic.
This was posted on Apartment Therapy back in September, but I just discovered today on Cup of Jo.
This is so incredible, right?! I’ve seen a lot of really spectacular light shows, but this one really strikes me because the lights are all in such natural shapes! Lights made to look like flowers and peacocks? Awesome!
The display is at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Bellevue, Washington. If you live near there, please go check it out for me! The great pictures were taken by Lecia of A Day That is Dessert, where you can see a bunch more pictures of the display!
Many of you may already be familiar with the work of Yorkshire-born artist Jack Smith, who created the awesome pieces above, among many others. I love his style – abstract and colorful! Flowers Gallery in London is currently having a show of his work to celebrate his eightieth birthday, and to my delight, their site has a fantastic slide show featuring many of his pieces! Definitely worth checking out!
